After successfully organising Aspire Jam for the past three years, Aspire Zone has announced that this year’s edition of Aspire Jam will be held on Saturday 14 March 2015 from 3 pm to 8 pm at Aspire Park Basketball Court.
The fourth edition of Aspire Jam is a unique opportunity for Qatar’s best street basketball players to showcase their amazing skills and incredible techniques in front of a home grown audience.
Events Manager at Aspire Zone, Abdulla Al Khater, said:
Basketball is a really popular sport in Qatar and we are delighted to be organising the 4th edition of Aspire Jam. The event is a rare opportunity for our incredibly talented local street basketball players to come together and show us their outstanding skills. Aspire Zone is committed to organising events that involve the community, particularly young people that helps them to be active, to enjoy a sport, while at the same time to have fun!’
Aspire Jam is a three-on-three street basketball tournament with two substitutes completing the team of five. All games will be played on a half court, as per the previous years. This edition of Aspire Jam will feature 16 teams competing for the coveted title.
The event is open to both Qatari nationals as well as male residents living in Qatar aged 16 years and over. Aspire Jam has specifically been organised to highlight the talent of amateur players, and not for professional and college players.
Aspire Zone remains dedicated to organising events that promote living a healthy lifestyle and encourage the community to be active like Aspire Jam, Aquathon, Cycle in Aspire and Kids run the park. Basketball enthusiasts and teams that are looking to enter should log on to www.lifeinaspire.qa as spots are expected to fill fast.
